Forests on the Wasatch Mountains (image right) are dull green, while dry lakes and streams are white. A few scattered circles of green vegetation show farmland watered by center-pivot irrigation. At lower right of the top image, the Colorado River carves through the salmon-colored rock of the Colorado Plateau at Glen Canyon.
